Level 2 Food Safety – Manufacturing

Level 2 Food Safety – Manufacturing

Help to minimise food safety risks and ensure the ongoing supply of safe food from the manufacturing industry with this Level 2 award in Food Safety for Manufacturing training programme.

If you work in food manufacturing at any level, you are likely to have legal duties and obligations about how you carry out your work.

These regulations have been created to deliver the best possible food safety and food hygiene standards across the industry.

Food contamination and food poisoning can have fatal consequences, so it is crucial to be equipped with all the necessary knowledge to deliver safe working practices and excellent food handling processes.


Is this the right course for you?

This level 2 award in food safety for manufacturing is one of a range of online food safety training courses that we offer.

Anyone actively involved in the food manufacturing industry, including factory workers, should consider enrolling on this Level 2 food safety in Manufacturing course.

If your role involves storing, preparing, cooking, serving or selling food, this course will help you to understand the broader context in which you work, the legislation that governs how you should carry out your food hygiene tasks, and the best practices available for all food handling tasks.

Level 2 Award Food Safety – Manufacturing: what is covered?

A detailed look at relevant food legislation is the focus of the first of four modules on this training programme.

You will be given a strong understanding of the regulations in place to prevent the avoidable contamination of food, and will finish the course knowing exactly what you need to do to comply with those laws.

In the second module, students will be asked to consider all potential contamination hazards – from delivery to service – in the food supply chain.

These will range from physical and biological hazards through to allergenic and chemical hazards. Each will be examined in detail, and students who complete this module will emerge with a much greater awareness of the hazards that poor food hygiene can create.

Module three moves on to risk control and preventing food contamination. Students are given demonstrations and instructions on to how to most effectively tidy, clean, wash up and maintain excellent personal hygiene.

Finally, the fourth and last module of this course considers the threat pests pose to good food safety and hygiene.

Students learn about how to protect premises from pests – a vital step in ensuring a clean, hygienic and safe operating environment for all food manufacturing businesses.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
